Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 2.0.22
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://www.gnupg.org/
Summary     : Utility for secure communication and data storage
Description :
GnuPG is GNU's tool for secure communication and data storage.  It can
be used to encrypt data and to create digital signatures.  It includes
an advanced key management facility and is compliant with the proposed
OpenPGP Internet standard as described in RFC2440 and the S/MIME
standard as described by several RFCs.

GnuPG 2.0 is a newer version of GnuPG with additional support for
S/MIME.  It has a different design philosophy that splits
functionality up into several modules. The S/MIME and smartcard
functionality
is provided by the gnupg2-smime package.
